Major Endorsements Follows PLP North Andros and Berry Island Candidate at GOLD RUSH EVENT!!! A DOCTOR IS HEADED TO THE HOUSE!
Nassau, Bahamas — If last night in Nicholl’s Town was anything, it was more than a smashing success and could mean the FNM candidate in North Andros and the Berry Islands is just may not get his deposit back.
PLP chiefs Christie, Davis, and Roberts pulled out all the stops last night as the Party’s GOLD RUSH machinery landed in the BIG YARD!
All over Andros, PLP crabs gathered to witness what was the biggest endorsement night for the PLP since the campaign began.
Androsians turned to the big screens to watch United States President Bill Clinton celebrate and endorse the work of Dr. Michael Perry Gomez, who is the PLP candidate for the area. With the kindest of words, the former US President spoke of Dr, Gomez’s commitment to the work of medicine and his dedication to preserving the lives of many during the height of the HIV crisis.
Clinton went on to celebrate Perry Gomez, mentioning his decorated accomplishments around the world.
But if that was not enough, also sharing the podium and lauding the work of Dr, Gomez, was wife of former Prime Minister and an Androsian herself, Dame Marguerite Pindling, who told Androsians last night it is time to do that ‘ting’ [vote]!
“Heaven is looking down on us tonight, and you know, Andros, up there the streets are paved with Gold!
“And so I want you to support our candidate and the PLP. Put your hand beside the hand and if you’re not sure, put your hands in the hand,” she told a mass crowd of supporters just outside the Party’s headquarters.
Former Anglican Archbishop and current Assistant Bishop Drexel Gomez hailed his brother as one who made sacrifices for people all his life as he took the road to save lives while others followed the more lucrative avenues of the medical profession.
Bishop Gomez urged the community to join his brother and support him as the next MP for the constituency.
“Let the church say amen,” were the words coming from Bains and Grants Town MP, Dr. B. J. Nottage, who also showered praise on Gomez for his continued service to people.
Celebrating the people of Andros as “Strong and Resilient”, PLP Chairman Bradley Roberts urged Androsians to “out-rightly reject the sick, low down and dirty tactics of a desperate Hubert Ingraham and Desmond Bannister.”
He called for the residents to embrace Dr. Gomez and urged their support for his respectable, credible, caring and hardworking leadership from a man who will put his shoulders to the wheel to fight for the interests of all in North Andros and the Berry Islands.
PLP Deputy Leader Philip Brave Davis echoed the accolades showered on Dr. Gomez, stating that he “has a heart of gold,” for the people of the Bahamas.
He reminded residents how Andros became the pacesetters for the movement of the PLP as it stunned the UBP by electing Clarence Bain and Cyril Stevenson as Members of the House of Assembly in the historic election of 1956.
The Cat Island, Rum Cay and San Salvador MP cautioned Androsians that the last thing the country needs now is to reelect as its head someone who was described by former FNM Cabinet Minister Kenneth Russell as a “Tyrant and Dictator”.
Playing the song “Ask me Why I Run”, Davis advised the people of North Andros to ask “Desmond ‘Abandoned’ Bannister, who abandoned his constituents in Carmichael, “Ask him why he run?” he repeated.
PLP Leader Perry Christie assured Andros that when elected, Dr. Perry Gomez will play a significant role in the direction of the country.
Chiding Hubert Ingraham for his “nasty lies” against the PLP, Christie told Androsians to get ready to embrace a bright future with the Party that will put Bahamians first.
